Empowerment, empathy, compassion, and trust are the pillars upon which I build a safe healing space for clients to overcome obstacles. Along with a secure therapeutic relationship, I use interventions proven effective such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT).
I have completed Level 1 training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy. When working with couples, I channel these skills towards building a platform to increase relationship intimacy through healthy communication, conflict resolution, building love maps, and making life dreams come true.
For several years I have worked with individuals, couples, groups, and families from diverse backgrounds, propelling all towards their full potential. Ethically, I use only evidence based practices supported by groundbreaking research, which provide clients with interventions demonstrated to work best for their unique struggles.
I look forward to providing an engaging, educational, and life altering experience in all sessions, increasing mental strength, and providing a smoother ride ahead in life.

We are going through an ever evolving time in our lives that requires sensitivity to ourselves, others, and the world we live in. These times can also bring up feelings of struggle, isolation/loneliness, uncertainty, and even despair. However, this does not have to be your end point. I will assist in guiding you to be empowered and reach a sense of healing through my empathetic, insightful, and supportive therapeutic approach. My goal is to facilitate your growth in your personal journey with non-judgement and unconditional support. I will walk with you and help you to develop into the best you, you can be.
I work with each client individually to meet their presented needs. My experience varies from working with LGBTQ+, severe and persistent mental illness, anxiety, depression, grief, PTSD, relationship issues, and trauma. My approach varies based on your concerns and we will work together to develop a personalized plan to reach your identified goals.
Asking for help is not easy, but we all need it sometimes. My goal is to build a strong therapeutic relationship with you based on trust and help to understand your strengths so that you can take what we work on in therapy, outside of the therapy room and implement it into your daily life.
While each client is different, I often incorporate a cognitive behavioral and person centered approach. This will allow us to examine the relationship between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, while keeping our collaborative alliance at the core.
I have worked with clients from ages 7-70 from various ethnic, racial, and cultural backgrounds. I have helped individuals work through their struggles with self-esteem, anger, depression, anxiety, body image/food issues, family stress, relationship issues, and more. I look forward to working with you, assisting you in learning more about yourself, and helping you to develop positive coping skills for life.

Life gets messy, there is no doubt about that. I strive to create a casual and comfortable environment in my sessions where the underlying principle is that all individuals possess the qualities necessary to flourish. This means that together, we focus on empowerment, responsibility, and accountability amidst making positive changes that are in line with the vision you have for your life.
My humanistic and solution-focused approach will help you get to a place of feeling understood and accepted while developing heightened emotional intuition so that you can begin to take control of your life in areas that once seemed unbalanced.
I have worked with a broad range of ages, ethnicities, and issues while using a unique blend of evidence-based practices to help individuals gain clarity in their lives, define goals and develop a game plan to start smashing roadblocks and making real progress toward their ideal lifestyle and emotional wellbeing.
Whether leveling up your confidence, building intimacy and closeness in relationships, achieving peak performance in your profession, or grabbing a hold of the everyday stressors in your life, we will design creative interventions specifically tailored to your goals.
Life is the greatest storyteller and each individual is their biggest expert. Connecting with a therapist or professional is a step closer to self discovery or healthy change to a brighter future. Being a first-generation immigrant, familiarity with cultural norms and expectations can be sometimes misunderstood. We all have our own unique familial and cultural ways of engaging and navigating in relationships and handling marital issues, family conflicts, work stressors, and even our self-worth and self-care. I would love to assist in exploring and navigating this process with you to gain better balance in a greater, healthier, and graceful manner in interpersonal relationships.
During my practice in the mental health field as a therapist and prior to, I have worked with numerous couples, families, children, teenagers/adolescents, and older adults of various backgrounds (both religious and non-religious). With my past direct care experience, working with clients with developmental issues (down’s syndrome, autism, and schizophrenia) have provided me with the tools for providing care on a holistic level. Working with victims of trauma and mental challenges (anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, OCD & more) have further informed the need for systemic interventions for client’s growth and healing.
When working with clients, I draw from an array of systemic modalities: mindfulness, structural therapy, narrative therapy, dance therapy, spiritual therapy, solution-focused therapy and emotionally-focused therapy, to help clients become a better version of themselves. Communication can be expressed in many ways, whether it is verbal or non-verbal; through visual arts, body movements, and/or in writing. We will work together to create more expansive and healthier ways of expression. In the words of the famous Carl Jung: “I am not what happened to me. I am who I choose to become.”
